GENESEE COUNTY — Matthew Smith of Davison Township was elected to the ELGA Credit Union Board of Directors this past week.
ELGA membership from across the state took to the polls to cast their ballot. Smith unseated incumbent Board member Kevin Keane of Flushing.
Prior to being elected to the Board, Smith served on the ELGA Credit Union Supervisory Committee for two years.
“ELGA is one of the largest financial institutions in the community and is the best for a reason. I want to thank the voters for putting me here; I will work hard for the betterment of the Credit Union. What an honor to sit at the board table to make these important decisions for ELGA… A place where I’ve been a member since my high school checking account.” Smith said.
He is also a member of the Davison Board of Education. Smith says he hopes to learn more about the world of finance to take back to Davison Schools to teach our children personal finance and basic life skills. — G.G.
